Observed a small white flash in the night sky, while having a drink with a friend.

I was sitting on the balcony of my apartment, having a drink with a friend. While we were talking, a bright flash appeared in the sky, catching my eye. It was not large, about a 1/4 the size of the moon, but definitely bright enough to get my attention. It was pure, white light, and looked just like when that flash when a starship goes to warp in "Star Trek." Sorry to use that imagery, but that is exactly what it looked like to me.

My friend had his back to the flash, so he did not see it. I was for a moment thinking it could somehow be a meteor, but it was localized in one spot and there was no trail, nor did it move anywhere beyond where the flash occurred. It was a pure white light, which also is a bit strange for a meteor.
